This collection of essays surveys an important but neglected topic: anonymous publication in England for the Elizabethan age to the 21st century. A group of scholars analyzes a wide range of literary phenomena including: Shakespeare in 17th-century commonplace books; the phrase "By a Lady"; the implied author of an 18th-century queer fiction; Bentley and the battle of books; essays by Equiano (?); the novel, 1750-1830; Frankenstein's unnamed monster; the co-authored pseudonym Michael Field; 19th-century ghostwriting; and a postmodern hoax on national identity. The editor's introduction places the essays within the context of the historical trajectory of anonymous authorship.
